Data access charges for land registry data

The request was successful.

Dear Land Registry,

Can you provide information on the revenue your department gathers from selling and charging reproduction costs for registry data, and how many customers in a typical year use this service? Happy to get info from the most recent full year you have data for. If you direct me to any price lists or homepage outlining services that would be very useful too.

Yours faithfully,

Scott Edmunds
